Fear no more weekend warrior! Look upon the Red Eye as your cure all from hangover depression. Sure, we’ve all heard all sorts of cures from the morning madness. Everything has fallen on our ears from our father’s ballsy approach to taking a shot of whatever got us hammered the night before, the “hair of the dog” that bit our ass. The “greasy meal” treatment. Sleeping upside-down. We all know that water helps, but also tastes like hangover.
The truth is, most of these methods do help get the job done. But really, who has time? If you are anything like myself and you are trying to rid yourself of your hangover as soon as possible as well as sedating that crazy stomach of yours, listen carefully: The Red Eye is the answer. Don’t just take it from me. Take it from young Flannigan’s mentor, Doug in Cocktail. He explains not only how its a much better remedy then pizza, but also the proper way to serve one up:
- 1 oz vodka
- 6 oz tomato juice
- 1 can of beer
- 1 raw egg
Into a tall frosty mug, pour the vodka and tomato juice. Pour in the beer, then crack the egg into it. Do not stir – Drink in a swift chug, give yourself a pat on the back for taking an important first step in practicality.
